the power ten are ohio, florida, north carolina, virginia, new hampshire, colorado, nevada, iowa, wisconsin, and michigan. memorize those states. they make up a whopping 126 electoral votes. given this, it's perhaps totally not that surprising at all that president obama has been campaigning in new hampshire, iowa and florida since friday. in the same period, governor romney has hit iowa, new hampshire, virginia and travels to ohio today. as a backgrounder, in 2008, president obama won all of these states in contention. this year, polling in key tossup states is making the romney campaign very, very nervous, especially in ohio. leading up to the conventions, president obama held a six-point lead in the state. but the romney campaign tells politico their internal polling since then has shown as much as a nine-point gap in the buckeye state. this comes as voters in many key swing states are already heading to the polls or will be shortly. early voelgts in north carolina began by mail-in ballot last thursday. late next week early voting begins in wisconsin, michigan, new hampshire and virginia

. digging deeper into the battleground states. when virginia delegates cast their ballots at the convention, the vote will be unanimous. the state has voted republican seven times in the last eight elections, except 2008. will president obama take it again or will voters return to the gop? also, a raging wildfire in the hills above los angeles. a live update on what's happening there jon: your election headquarters. taking a look at the key battleground states that could make or break this white house race this time around. today we are looking at virginia. folks in virginia have been reliably republican for a long, long time, except last time around when they voted for president obama in 2008. if you take a look at the stats, virginia, a key prize this time around. oh electoral votes of 13 of them in virginia. the economy looking pretty good right now. that is part of the reason that both campaigns want to claim the state. 5.9% unemployment in virginia. much better than the national average. in terms of the history, president obama has been there seven times. this campaign season, mitt rom
